RUSH: F. Chuck Todd — oh, by the way, F. Chuck Todd today was scheduled to interview Zev Chafets, the author of Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One. F. Chuck has a show on MSNBC from nine to ten a.m. And Zev sent me a note saying he was on the way over there to the studio to do the interview and they called and canceled. And I said, ‘Why do you think they canceled you?’ And he said, ‘Rush, you know these people, you know the media. They don’t fear anything. They don’t fear a foreign attack. They don’t fear a terrorist attack. They don’t fear any domestic event as much as they fear disapproval from their peers.’ Meaning, F. Chuck was probably worried that other media people would give him the business for having Zev Chafets on to promote the book and probably is already getting indications, ‘F. Chuck, what are you doing? You’re going to put this guy on? This is a great Limbaugh book. It puts Limbaugh in a good light.’
So they canceled Zev Chafets, the author of Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One, while he was on his way to the interview. And apparently a lot of people have booked Zev and have canceled or haven’t followed up on their initial indication or request. See, it’s just like this. They assume somebody writing a book on me is writing a hit piece and so they can’t wait to get the author on. Then they read the book and say, ‘Wait a minute, this isn’t a hit piece, why, this guy was nice to Limbaugh, this guy, we can’t put this guy on. This doesn’t fit the template, Limbaugh a good guy? No.’ So they’ve canceled. Zev Chafets, Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One, Zev Chafets: A Journalist of One. He’s out there flying blind. He’s on his own out there.
